HyperRAM 2.0 Memory

Cypress HyperRAM™ 2.0 is a high-speed, low-pin-count, self-refresh Dynamic RAM (DRAM) for high-performance embedded systems requiring expansion memory. HyperRAM 2.0 offers HyperBus™ and Octal SPI interfaces that draw upon the legacy features of both parallel and serial interface memories, while enhancing system performance and ease of design, as well as reducing system cost.

The 12-pin, HyperBus and Octal SPI interfaces operate at Double Data Rate (DDR) and can scale up to 400 MB/s throughput making HyperRAM 2.0 the ideal expansion memory for controllers with limited on-board RAM. When used as a scratch-pad memory, the fast read and write operations enable fast delivery of high-resolution graphics in the early part of the system boot process. HyperRAM 2.0 is the ideal memory for automotive instrument clusters, industrial HMI, industrial machine vision and display systems for consumer electronics.
